To reach Salice, first go into the village of Montaretto then take the small road down to the right of the square of the village, just after the church. It's a downhill narrow road that after 200 m. becomes a dirt road. Follow the road signs for Poggio del Salice and drive carefully up to the house (about 800 m.). Our house is the last one where the road becomes a path. You find the video of the road below here.

To reach Montaretto you can take the A12 highway Genova-Rosignano, take the Deiva Marina exit (even if you arrive from south) and follow the road signs for Levanto for about 10 km. A couple of km after Costa, a hamlet of Framura, you arrive to the crossroads to Montaretto.
If you choose to take the SS1 Aurelia (old road), once you reach La Baracca you take the road to Levanto-Bonassola. After 8,5 Km on the right there are the Framura-Montaretto crossroads where, after 2 km. more, you reach Montaretto.

If you choose to come by train, I can come get you at your arrival and take you when you leave to the Levanto train station.
It's very important that we agree on the time at least one week before your arrival.

If you prefer to get here on your own:

- From the Framura rail station, walk the tunnel and go up the stairs located on the curve after the tunnel. When you reach the road, follow on the right for about 500 m.
On your way, you will pass the descent to Portopidocchio Cove (which is very beautiful and a nice place to swim) and a number of red apartment buildings.
At the end of the road there’s a bulletin board with information about the surroundings. Two paths begin here. Take the one that goes up where you see the sign SVA for Salice-Bonassola. From here the path is in the woods with great views of the coast. After the little bridge over a stream, the path continues up to our house. The last part is a little bit demanding climb.

- From the Bonassola rail station, take the path (not the tunnel) SVA towards Framura (ask someone where the entrance is, because the beginning it is not clearly labeled).
When you are about to exit Bonassola, be sure to walk on Carpeneggio road (there is also a yellow sign to Salto della Lepre). Climb the steep road all the way and when it starts to go downwards, after 100 meters, you find a path SVA signed Framura or Salice. From now on, you walk in the woods up to Salice.
When you arrive to Salice, the path crosses a road. Walk downwards your left and, after 100 meters, you will reach us.
From mid-June to early September there's a bus service from Bonassola to Montaretto (ask me the timetable). You can catch the bus up to Montaretto and then follow the dirt road for Salice as above described. About 15 minutes on foot all downhill.

- Levanto railway station is a little bit farther away but it is a stop for InterCity trains, so if you arrive from Milan or Pisa you can get there without change. From the station take the bus to Montaretto (for timetables see our links page) or take a taxi which will cost about 25 euro. From Montaretto follow the dirt road for Salice as above described. About 15 minutes on foot all downhill.
